Football Crazy

It's my husband's birthday today, (age undisclosed!) he's a massive football fan so I went with that as a theme for his card.  He also likes CAS cards, not my favourite to make, but he really doesn't like my usual fussy style, I guess he's just not a "more is more" kinda guy!
I got a chance to use some seriously geriatric stash on this one, the image stamps are old Docrafts SeeDees.  I masked off a strip with low tack tape, then randomly stamped footballs and stars to create a patterned panel.  I then used sentiment stamps from two Papermania sets to add the words.  The patterned paper is Papermania, It's a Man's World, to which I've added a yellow mat for a splash of colour.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Shopping Our Stash - #136 - Cabin Fever
Creative Creations - Less is More
Ooh La La - #148 - Man Card
My Time to Craft - #232 - Use Two Images -  Football stamp and star cluster stamp
